Karen Tanaka, Unsuk Chin

45 minutes
First broadcast:
Saturday 19 November 2011

Karen Tanaka's beautiful yet brittle piano piece Crystalline echoes Messiaen's piano writing at a distance but conjures an inner-world of reflections and restraint. And from the BBC's 2011 Total Immersion events, a performance of Unsuk Chin's Grawemeyer-award-winning Violin Concerto, played by Jennifer Koh and the BBC Symphony Orchestra.
